This paper presents a demonstration of the new Licensed Shared Access (LSA) concept using a TD-LTE access network in the 2.3 GHz spectrum band in Finland. In the demonstrated trial, the TD-LTE network shares the spectrum of an incumbent spectrum user, who is focused on programme making and special events (PMSE) services. The demonstrator implements the new(More)
This paper presents the results from a live field trial of the new Licensed Shared Access (LSA) concept using a TD-LTE network in the 2.3 GHz spectrum band in Finland. In the trial a live LTE network shares the spectrum from incumbent programme making and special events (PMSE) service including cordless cameras without causing harmful interference. The(More)
This demonstration presents a live spectrum sharing trial of the new Licensed Shared Access (LSA)/ Authorised Shared Access (ASA) concept. The trial shows the feasibility of the LSA/ASA concept and demonstrates how a mobile network operator (MNO) could take a new shared LSA/ASA band into use in a straight forward manner in response to the growing traffic(More)
We present an end-to-end ecosystem trial of the Licensed Shared Access (LSA) concept using a live LTE network sharing the 2.3 GHz band with incumbent wireless cameras. The entire LSA concept is implemented introducing LTE network as an additional licensed user in the band with the aid of an LSA Repository for spectrum availability information from wireless(More)
This paper presents interference measurements for spectrum sharing between Long-Term Evolution (LTE) network and wireless cameras in the 2.3-2.4 GHz band under the new Licensed Shared Access (LSA) concept. The introduction of wireless broadband (WBB) communications services in this band is currently under study in European regulation and standardization. If(More)
In this paper, we describe a spectrum access system (SAS) based Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) field trial using a live LTE network in the 3.5 GHz band. The latest WInnForum specification guided the implementation of the relevant protocols for SAS operation. Here, we evaluate the performance of a CBRS field trial by using one of the most important(More)
This paper presents the first end-to-end field trial of the U.S. three-tier Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) with carrier aggregation using commercial 3.5 GHz network elements in a live LTE-A test network. The trial features an assignment of a shared spectrum to an operational LTE base station and demonstrates how it boosts the end user mobile data(More)
The objective of this paper is to compare uplink (UL) performance with different antenna technologies when receiving Non-Line of Sight (NLOS) signal in field tests. The antenna configurations in use were a passive antenna system and an active antenna system (AAS). The radiation pattern can be controlled horizontally by changing its azimuth angle and(More)
